Leadership Legends
 

To Prepare, Inspire and Support Leadership for the
Improved Future of Our Community!


WHAT IS LEADERSHIP LEGENDS?

Community Vision has been creating new leaders through its leadership programs since 1989. As we strive to create a more leaderful community, we recognize the rich experience and vast heritage that our "golden" age residents have to offer. Therefore, we are launching a Senior Leadership Program called Leadership Legends. In partnership with the Osceola County Council on Aging, this program will mirror many of the same topics, issues and experiences of "traditional" leadership in a non-traditional way.

Capitalizing on this often underutilized resource, our retirees and senior citizens, we will able to capture their strength and experience to tackle community issues. This program will engage another population of leaders enabling us to move forward in achieving the community's vision for a preferred vision. Leadership Legends will also enable us to capitalize on the Florida Department of Elder Affairs program "Communities for a Lifetime", an initiative to make Florida elder ready by recognizing that our elders are assets and community building resources.

Leadership Legends will run concurrently with the adult Leadership Osceola program, mid-February to June. Over the course of the program participants are introduced to our community including social services, criminal justice, education, healthcare, governmental services, environment, economic development, community planning/vision, arts and culture. Through real life experiences, the class learns of the strengths and challenges of the community, in which they live and work. On a bi-weekly basis every other Wednesday, the program leads the participants through a series of invigorating and insightful daylong experiences that cover a multitude of community oriented subjects and issues. No stone is left unturned in the pursuit of community orientation and leadership awareness. In addition, seasoned moderators will bring to the program exciting, skill-based knowledge and a new focus on community leadership skills development.

Leadership Legends encourages participation from anyone who wants to make a difference in Osceola County. The primary beneficiary will be the Osceola County community.
